It was a late night at Xavier Blk‘s crib in September when I was first introduced to a quirky artist out of Atlanta called ILoveMakonnen. One listen to his now club-hit “Tuesday” was enough to have me wide-eyed and asking a lot of questions. Claiming influences from Gucci Mane to The Killers, his sound is truly unique. But if I could sum up his appeal in one single word, I would say that everything about him is just plain “catchy.” Now signed to OVO Records, which was christened by Drake hopping on a remix of “Tuesday” that spread across the internet as only Drake can, ILoveMakonnen is generating widespread buzz across the industry. Check out his video for “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” below. ILoveMakonnen will be performing at Quad for A3C this week in Atlanta.
